  Another take on gaskets
  Posted by: Guideboatguy on Jan-21-14 11:38 AM (EST)

I think for a person who's only doing quiet-water paddling, having exposed gaskets is probably not such a big concern. However, even in quiet water, being quite far from shore might be reason enough to want the gasket's covered. This is just a case of weighing the chances of a tear against the consequences, where even though the risk of a tear is tiny, the consequences when far from shore would be far worse than when on a quiet river. So once again, the cheaper suit might be acceptable for a paddler who's not taking great risks in the first place.
